Hi, I'm using Raleway font (available on google web fonts) in my gnome-shell but I can't setup the font in the top bar, I tried adding the font-family in /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css and /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gdm.css in some #panel tags but is not working, do you know what's the correct place for this? I'm also changed this on tweak tool on fonts and it change the gtk font in the apps but not in the top bar.

Thanks for the theme is really nice.

You should change the font in the theme's css file.

It might be ~/.themes/Shine/gnome-shell.css or /usr/share/themes/Shine/gnome-shell.css

From the Aqua page: Sorry folks. I don't have time to update Aqua for Gnome Shell 3.4 and will delete it from here soon. You are free to fork it if you like.

Metacity and mutter themes cannot be transparent unless you use emerald. And you cannot use emerald with Gnome Shell.

I think they're talking about the message tray. If you've got some IM buddies with custom photos, they spill over the top of the bar. I fiddled around with it, and I think I eventually got it working by setting the height to something like 3em.

Beautiful theme, by the way.

Awesome theme! Using this more frequently than Dark Shine. Will you update it as well?
I'm also maintaining this on archlinux AUR: [link]

Install (provided yaourt is installed): yaourt -S gnome-shell-theme-shine

Well I couldn't wait so I fixed a Cinnamon version myself of Shine and Dark Shine.
Hope you don't mind.

I won't recommend it though. Some elements won't be styled and you might get freezes. But as Fedora 16 will soon be out, it is a good idea to upgrade :)

Whichever you like. if you like simple and cleaner themes, I have made a theme named Evolve. Or Zukwito can also look good :)
